CENTERVILLE — Sally Wiinikainen Syrjala died on August 15, 2010, at the Eagle Pond Rehabilitation Center after a lengthy illness. Sally was born on June 21, 1948, in West Barnstable, Mass. She was the daughter of the late Victor and Lempi Mary Wiinikainen.

She was predeceased by her husband Edward "Ike" Syrjala and her sister Helen Bahm. She is survived by her brother Victor Wiinikainen, her sister Nancy Sobel of Lake City, Mich., several aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many special friends.

Sally graduated valedictorian of her class in 1966 from Barnstable High School.

She worked at the Christ Church in Harwich Port, Independence House, Health Education Associates, and Art Waves. Sally was a member of The First Lutheran Church in West Barnstable. Some of her many volunteer activities included: Treasurer of Green Cape, Chair of the Friends of Cape Cod Museum of Art, and Secretary of West Barnstable Historical Society.
